To celebrate World Environment Day, on June 5th 2013, Catholic Earthcare Australia is proud to announce the launch of our 2013 annual resource- The Awesome Cosmic Story.

An interactive, educational program ‘The Awesome Cosmic Story’ explores the creation of our universe, and the world as we know it, through an inspirational blend of theology and science.

In the lead up to World Environment Day on June 5th, Catholic Earthcare Director Jacqui Rémond hopes this interactive education tool will “encourage Christians young and old to experience wonder and awe at the beauty and complexity of God’s creation. “When we spend time reflecting on our belief that everything in the universe is created by God, it’s hard to ignore our call as Christians to care for, and be responsible guardians, of such a wonderful gift, given with love.”

This resource was developed for the purpose of providing a much needed resource for educators to share the story of the universe in a contemporary way with their Catholic students. The graphics, short movies and narrative provide the tools for learning to take place. Contributors include Fr Denis Edwards, Sr Monica Sparks SGS and Ms Beth Riolo at the Catholic Education Office in Wollongong.

The Awesome Cosmic Story is free and can be accessed via the Catholic Earthcare website www.catholicearthcare.org.au Please note that you will need to have ‘Adobe Shockwave’ software on your device, which is free to download from the Adobe website.
